Preventive maintenance is the best way to stay off camellia petal blight. First, remove old damp mulch from the surrounding area. Keep the bed clean and cleared of debris. Do not water overhead, as this sets up the conditions for this fungus to grow. Pick off and dispose of all browned flowers.

Terraclor is often used to control petal blight, but the above suggestions work much more effectively.
